Introducing WeKast –
WeKast is a pocket-sized professional presentation solution that you can count on. You can present your content straight from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. WeKast delivers it where you want-- to ANY screen.
Simple and streamlined. Just plug and cast!
We have all been there. You have an awesome presentation, you're dressed to kill and then the technology fails. The WiFi is down, you have the wrong plug or it is plain taking forever. Now, you're stressed and the clients that you are supposed to impress are now staring at their watches, or worse-- they glaring at you. Not a good way to make a first impression. Even if you get it to work - you’ve lost your edge.
The WeKast Solution
Imagine... you show up at your meeting, plug the wireless WeKast into any HDMI or VGA port, open your fantastic presentation on your device and you're ready to go.
You control everything -- slides, business docs, videos or photos -- from the app.
With no wires, tech problems or hassle. You can smile, relax and engage with your audience. You got this.
WeKast has your back!
- No setup. Just plug & cast!
- No need to rely on any other device or equipment
- No need to rely on local WIFI
- No need to carry around anything other than your phone and your WeKast
- Freedom to move around the room, while controlling everything from your phone
WeKast is the only mobile-based professional presentation solution that completely eliminates the awkward set-up process while increasing mobility and engagement. WeKast was designed for a professional environment with mobility and simplicity in mind.
Other wireless mobile solutions, like Chromecast or Apple TV, are great for watching movies or listening to music at home but we feel they are not suitable for business use due in part to lengthy setups. They need a 10-20 minutes setup for every change in meeting location, you have to repeat the process and connect to the local WIFI. Home solutions are impractical and unreliable for business meetings.
WeKast does not need any set up. It lets you connect without requiring a setup, an internet connection or even a laptop. If you still prefer to use your laptop, you can also do so without needing cables or adapters that ties you to one spot.
HOW IT WORKS
Our 2 steps solution could not be any easier:
1) Plug Wekast to any TV or projector using the HDMI or VGA port - WeKast acts as a WiFi router that communicates automatically to your phone or tablet.
2) Open the app and select a preloaded presentation. You can upload directly any files from your Dropbox or Google Drive. One click and you are presenting.
The app supports files into a mobile format keeping fonts, colors and videos intact. It’s also easy to preload presentations on your device from your PC. Just use our built-in PowerPoint plug-in to send files. Once you open the app, your presentations will be downloaded and ready to go.
WEKAST ENGAGEMENT PLATFORM
The best presentations are conversations where you can interact with your audience. This is why we came up with WeKast ENGAGE.
WeKast engagement platform will allow you to:
1) Share your slides live with attendees
2) Collect feedback in real time
3) Follow up with attendees/ send your presentation
4) Engage with your broader audience via Social Media channels
Our goal is to make meetings more social, interactive and dynamic. And at the same time, making it easy to connect any screens together and share experiences anywhere.

Risks and challenges
We have developed our plan for manufacturing in Asia and for shipping to our backers around the world. We have sourced the factories for all of WeKast's major components. During the production process, we expect to make minor changes to optimize the design for mass production. On the logistics side, we have established partnerships with a US fulfillment house and international shippers to help the WeKasts get to where they’re going quickly and safely.
We have taken the time to get nearly everything in place before launching this campaign. We took the risk up front by delaying the launch of this campaign until we believed it was ready, to lessen the risk to our backers. We have a great team in place so we don't predict many obstacles here. But there is always the unknown. But we will face every obstacle with the same tenacity and perseverance that we have from the start.
We pledge to keep our backers well-informed in a timely manner throughout the entire production process and to do everything we can to deliver the WeKast to you as planned.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
